2017 Montes Purple Angel Carmenere Maipo Chile
Sappy, rooty aromas of baked black fruit, spice cake and chocolate announce a supremely ripe Carmenère (with 8% Petit Verdot) that's as lush, chewy and dense on the palate as possible without being overdone. Massive blackberry, cassis, chocolate and baking spice flavors finish toasty and rich. While this turns over no new stones, it's decidedly appealing. Drink through 2021.
